The Actuator Control Unit System or ACU System is a modular propulsion control system designed to be adaptable for multiple configurations with simple selection of various components.
The ACU system can be used to control the waterjet deflector(s) as well as engine throttle and gearbox engagement.
The key component in the system is the ACU, a controller box which can be connected to 3 different actuators depending on its role within the overall system.
The ACU can accept an analogue voltage signal (typically 0-5v), a CAN signal, or a mechanical input from a 33C cable via the built in potentiometer.
The ACU can be configured via the integrated button and ‘traffic light’ LED’s or via the ACU Service tool available for mobile platforms.
